Road Trip and audiobooks!

We are going camping this weekend so no posts for a few days! It is a shame because I am so close to being caught up on my reviews! Of course my son is a little bit culture shocked - no electricity (or more precisely no TV)...for four whole days!! How will we cope!

Last night I went to the library because I had some requests to pick up (why do they all come in at the same time?), and so I thought I would pick up an audiobook to listen to on the drive which is about 3 hours each way. Now you all know that I love my library. I get new books all the time, I visit at least twice a week, and I always have a gazillion items booked out, but I do have to say that the range of audiobooks at my local library leaves something to be desired. I used to listen to audiobooks all the time when I was driving to and from work, but since I started catching the train I haven't been listening to them at all. I had forgotten that in order to get a decent audiobook I had to drive three quarters of an hour to another library that I am a member of. Took me ages but I eventually found a couple of books to borrow. They are both old tapes so we will see whether they are okay or not.

I hope everyone has a happy and safe Easter.


  1. Marg have fun camping. We haven't camped for probably four years. We used to do it all the time with our boys. Even though it can be alot of work (the cooking) I always enjoyed the piece and quiet.

    Have a Happy Easter!

  2. Camping? Yikes!! Hope the weather stays nice and that you have a great Easter!


  3. Have fun Marg! Oh your boy Tomi is going to love this...but how about his mom? LOL.
    We used to go camping when I was a child, I turned into a hotel kind of person later. But hey, you're still young!

  4. Have fun!! I'm so NOT a camping person! We went once, and it was probably the hottest, wettest most miserable experience of my life!! Of course, I have friends that go all the time.

    Actually, I told my husband my definition of camping was going to a hotel without room service!!

  5. I'm sure you will have loads of fun, Marg! Happy Easter!
